The original Once Upon a Dime Card is happy to announce our first round of competition. I was pleased to see this photo floating around facebook with sound money advocate Dr. Ron Paul and Florida based liberty activist Tj Lawrence. Tj has adapted our idea and made his own End the Fed Cards for sale on his website.
Along with TJ, Austin area activist John Bush has been making and selling Dime Cards at local events around Texas, John recently gave this speech at a End The Fed rally in Huston. In his speech John is quoted as saying “If we all stopped using the Federal Reserve notes and start creating competing currency’s the fed would end it’s self.”
While we don’t see Shire Silver as a direct competitor with our model we are happy to have found a bar up in Winslow AZ that has adapted Ron’s silver business model of embedding pure silver strips in to laminated cards in one or five gram denominations. We will have to take a road trip up to Winslow and see what kind of brew I can get for one silver dime or a gram of silver.
